Canine Family Feud - Thanksgiving Edition

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year for everyone. Bringing family and friends (both human and furry) together over a wonderful meal is what the holiday is all about.

She lives with 3 of her own feline friends and loves to mimic them by laying in the sun, laying on the back of the couch, and sleeping 18 hours a day.

Picture it: A happy looking dog, mouth open, drooling and panting with a fat juicy T-bone steak being served to him on a plate. We have all seen this depiction in cartoons and media platforms for as long as we can remember. We have also been informed that meat is the preferred diet for our lupine-esque pals.

Grill Master Thor

Grilling out. Warm weather, bright sun, freshly mown grass, family gathered around. The "man of the house" is proudly donning his favorite apron, sandal/sock combo, and the self-proclaimed title "grill master". I don’t know about you, but I can smell it now. We aren't the only ones. Our pets are just as vulnerable to those enticing aromas, as one family found out.

Stop The Puppy Chewing Nightmare

Puppy chewing is one of the worst obstacles to overcome as a dog parent. I remember the day like it was yesterday... bringing Rusko home. He was so small, so cute, so sweet, and... he was a nightmare at the same time! And, of course, Jax was no different! It's a common scenario. You have a new puppy and have found that this cute bundle of joy is chewing on everything, including your hands, face, and other body parts it can reach!
